The makeup is all packed!

Hello lovelies!
First of all I'm so sorry I've been MIA for a while now. I'm so busy with the move and everything I hardly have time to sleep! 
I definitely have new respect for my mum she did 8 moves and its moving to another country type of move. I never thought it could all be soo stressful!
But anyways onto today's post!

The packers came to pack all of my stuff today, not only did they come 1 day early but they were like 3 hours early as well!!! so I definitely was in overdrive panic!! 
I probably mentioned this in some other post, I packed all of my makeup and clothes myself. I know that these movers are in 99% of the case man with  big hands and no appreciation of a woman's precious makeup! 
So yeah I packed it all, it definitely shows me how much stuff I have specially when it comes to palettes and lip products!!! 
I just wanted to do a quick post showing how everything was packed!
Its all here!

ELF brush holder; Palette holder; Eyeliners, mascaras, pencil eyeliners
Pen holders
Where all the lipstick, lip glosses, palettes, blushes and foundations/face products used to be
Spread on 2 layers:  on the top are lip glosses and a Sugarpill palette & below all the lipsticks
Sleek & MAC limited edition palettes, some pigments.
The palettes are labeled so I'll know what's what...
Single e/s a few pigments & most of the falsies
All the nail polishes...
Again all labeled!
1st layer
2nd layer...
They were all separated with paper so that they don't rub against each other

There you go it was just a quick look at how everything has been packed.
I should have taken a picture of the empty boxes. I really don't know why I keep the blush or lipstick boxes... its a disease!!! lol

All I hope now is that everything arrives safely with no casualties, lets pray that the eyeshadows don't break and most importantly that the lipsticks don't melt!
I think that would be my worst nightmare to be honest... Please lipsticks, stay strong!!

I'll probably do another post showing what I've kept with me. I already know the hubby will say I didn't need to take that much with me but I'm sentimental!!! lmao

Anyways I really hope to be back with new looks and makeup related updates soon!

Lotsa love!


  1. Wow, you do have a lot of stuff. I'm building my collection as we speak. I just bought so much stuff from ELF! I can't wait until my collection is that big. I hope the move is successful for you.

  2. You did a great job packing your stuff up. I'm taking some major notes. Where did you get the black boxes with the white flowers? Those are too cute.

  3. Good luck in the move! I love your pen holders :)

  4. Wow, you like like a pro the way you packed up everything. For my next move i will definitely revist this post.

  5. good luck with e move babes and hope all make up stays in tact and you wont lose anythn. Love e way u organised lol

  6. Thank you ladies! I'm an organization freak! Even the packers were surprised to see that I had already sorted everything out, putting all the books together, all the cutlery and plates already out... it took them 1h to pack everything!
    Now time to chuck everything else in the suitcase and off I go next week!!

  7. This is amazing I am inspired a)by the packing and b0 by the collection.

  8. You did great job packing them.
